We were looking in Porto last september for a bed to stay and found it in this nice, cozy hostel in the heart of Porto.
The city was quit full in september and we were lucky to find a place to sleep because we made no reservation in advanse.
We had a dorm in a sixbed room who was not really big and with six persons inside, the space was really limited there.
The hostel is situated on a street with much traffic, also in the nighttime and specialy in the night from friday to saturday but in general it was not a problem to sleep in the nighttime.
Tha hostel is decorated with many Posters of Films and Movies and they have also a big number of films as DVD there.
The house has a nice kitchen with a small table inside the kitchen, a livingroom with flatscreen, DVD player, a guitar and three Internetcomputer.
The bathroom is also OK, only the showers are a little bit small.
Securety is on a high level, even if you wanna leave the room, so you have to puch a button.
The best place in this hostel is for sure the rooftop terrace with a nice view over the roofs of Portos old town.
Breakfast is also good, nothing special but good and somemornigs they have a super delicious chokocake witch I really loved.
A downside are the partypeople, who have bin there this time because they made party all night and they don`t cared about the noise they made.
At least, they are offering also free citywalks twice a day and a nighttour to the pub and clubscene of Porto every night for a fair Price including a wine tasting.
